View Full Version : Game will install but not launch

Ok the game will install on my machine but it will not launch. When I put the DVD in the drive, it takes about 5 minutes before my system will recognize it. Once it does, I click play (or just double-click the nam shortcut). My mouse then turns into a disc icon for about 2 minutes and then i receive an error stating "Unable to autheticate original disc within the timelimit" retry or cancel. If I retry it';ll just keep doing the same thing. Any suggestions?

Oh yeah and I have no burning or CD emulation software on my system.

From Eidos:
Thank you for your message. Try setting the game to run in Windows 2000 compatibility mode. Right-click on the game's shortcut, and left-click properties. Click on Compatibility, and set it to run in Windows 2000 Compatibility mode. Then click on OK and start the game using that shortcut.

Gonna try it at lunch to see if it works. But for anyone else who maybe having this problem, give it a try.
